Coastal bird habitats on the Victorian coast

This layer identifies bird habitats in the Victorian coastal region. The layer is a polygon coverage with the polygon areas representing the main area of the respective bird habitats. Sites were identified from a broad range of published and unpublished sources of information and from personal communications made by experts in the field. In 2015 some additional locations were added with data from Birdlife Australia Shorebird 2020 Data. This dataset was formerly know as SHOREBIRD HABITAT but was renamed as it contains sites for seabirds and other birds.
